Adele has told fans in the US that she plans to have another baby.

The 28-year-old British singer is mother to four-year-old son Angelo with her partner Simon Konecki. 

As she came to the end of a concert in Phoenix, Arizona, on Monday night – the last of over 100 shows on a sellout world tour – she was filmed saying: "Give it up for me – I did it! I’ll see you on the other side. I’m going to have another baby!"

Following the show, Adele shared a cute snap of a welcome home banner made by Angelo in anticipation of her return to Britain.

The image, shared with 21.3 million followers, shows a hallway lit by a lamp and a huge home-made sign, decorated with painted hearts, spots and handprints.

The Hello singer will enjoy a break from the road until late February, said the Daily Mail, which is when she will set out to finish the tour with a handful of dates in Australia and New Zealand, where the tour will officially end with a show at Auckland's Mount Smart Stadium.

As of yet she has not revealed any plans to perform live for the foreseeable future.

Adele’s 2016 tour, in support of her third album - 25 - marked the first time she had toured in four years.

The singer has previously said that she feels "scared" of having another child, because she suffered post-natal depression after her son's birth, said Britain's Telegraph.

She told Vanity Fair last month: "My knowledge of post-partum or post-natal, as we call it in England, is that you don't want to be with your child; you're worried you might hurt your child; you're worried you weren't doing a good job.

"But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I'd made the worst decision of my life... It can come in many different forms."

In September, it was reported that Adele is preparing to take a 10-year hiatus from touring so that she can spend time with her only child.
According to The Sun, the Rolling In The Deep singer made the decision in light of the fact her son will start school next year and will be unable to join her on the road - but she is said to be considering a Las Vegas residency.

A source told the newspaper: "Angelo is the number one priority for Adele. He is the most important thing in her life."
